Patches for the Frozen release of osCommerce

The so-called "Frozen" version of osCommerce (2.3.41BS/CE development stream, frozen at May 15, 2018: here) needs some patches to be truly usable. These are unfortunately scattered over https://forums.oscommerce.com/ and are not easy to work with. I have tried to find as many as I could, and put them into consolidated patch files, one for Linux-style diff (Frozen.diff), and one for Windows-style fc (Frozen.fc). Unfortunately, they are probably not directly usable to patch the files, but will have to be first split into multiple individual file updates. Or, you can use them as a guide to manually edit the various files (and the database load, oscommerce.sql; or against the live database, via a tool such as phpMyAdmin).

No guarantee can be offered that these patches won't break something, or that they can be applied successfully. Always make a backup of your files before applying a patch, and it is your responsibility to understand what the patch is doing, and whether it is appropriate to apply it!
